OF THE DAY
Conrad Brunner</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>
Q. It seems like I read about Ron Artest trade rumors every day. Newspapers, Websites and TV stations all have gotten in on the act. How come there hasn't been any mention of the trade rumors on Pacers.com? (From Roberto in Santa Claus, Ind.)

A. Primarily, but not exclusively, because everything to this point has been little more than rumor or speculation. The reports are all couched with phrases like "have discussed" or "could consider" or "might be willing to." To this point, there has not been a rock-solid report from a credible media source reporting that a specific deal has been agreed upon. Until something serious comes along, there's no point in reacting to rumor or speculation.
We don't ignore the reports. In fact, we check them out thoroughly. The first step is to determine viability. You'd be surprised how many trade rumors make it into print involving packages that simply can't work because of Salary Cap restrictions. Of course, what often evolves is a permutation of the reported package, so we must also go to our sources within the organization to see if some other version of the reported deal is in the works. This is not to say all of the reports to this point are erroneous. In fact, some form of the deal that ultimately gets done might well have been mentioned already. But none of the reports have been presented as hard fact, with multiple-source confirmation. When it's real, you'll read about it here, but not before.

I didn't know some Hoosiers were so naive to their own state. It's the place where HolidayWorld resides, the state's only legit amusement park and one of the oldest in the nation.

Unfortunately, there is a Santa Claus, Indiana. I'm just shocked someone was stupid enough to ask why they don't put trade rumors on pacers.com. That's worse than how about we trade Ron for Andrei Kirilenko....I wish!

The real reason is because you touch yourself at night!
Seriously, why do they think that Pacers.com should basically report every bit of feces that is on the internet?

Not everyone on this website is from Indiana nor a Hoosier native. We have lots of non-Indiana linked fans as well.

I know I overlooked that.....but the point of my post was that Santa Claus is the home of Holiday World.
